New! Denys Wortman’s New York: Portrait of the City in the 30s and 40s
by CCS’s James Sturm and Brandon Elston (CCS ’09)
The Center for Cartoon Studies Denys Wortman’s New York is not only a tribute to Wortman, but it is a tribute to New York, the city that sparked Wortman’s voracious creative output. From coal cellars to roof tops, from opera houses to boarding houses, Wortman recorded the sailors, dish washers, con artists, entertainers, pushcart peddlers, construction workers, musicians, hobos, society matrons, young mothers, secretaries, and students who collectively make New York the city it is.
Many thanks to our community partner, FairPoint, for making this project possible by donating archiving space.
